Leakage/incontinence problems?

For anyone recovering from radiation after anal cancer, i highly recommend the Pelvic Health and Rehabilitation Center (located in San Francisco and a few other cities) to help stop sudden leakage/sphincter control/anal in continence issues. They are very helpful physical therapists who work to help you resolved pelvic floor irregularities caused by radiation. I heard about them through the NY anal cancer foundation and I am seeing improvement.  Of course high fiber foods and Metamucil help too. I also did 5 rounds of hyperbaric chamber, which couldn't hurt.
